"Her books were terrific page-turners in the way no others were". (Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse).

    Dr. Seuss wrote The Cat in the Hat in response to a plea to make first reading books for young children more entertaining and appealing to read. The madcap illustrations and wild exuberance of The Cat in the Hat verses certainly fit the brief, and this picture book version of the rhyming classic introduces the craziness to an even younger audience from 3+. If your youngster loves Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, then they will relish the silly madness of The Cat in the Hat.

    After making it onto the big screen in Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's major feature film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, there's no better time for young readers to immerse themselves in the young reporter's action-packed comic-strips - and the film was even partly based on this book. In The Crab With the Golden Claws, Tintin and Snowy stumble upon a police investigation under way in Brussels and set off on an adventure to Morocco, hot on the trail of a gang of opium smugglers. Herge was an author very much of his time, and this book marks Tintin's first meeting with Captain Haddock, a troublesome sailor who turns out to be a staunch ally!
